Stamford Bridge centre back to get the nod for upcoming encounters.
Fabio Capello has confirmed captain John Terry will be in the England squad to face Spain and Sweden when it is named on Sunday.
Terry is currently the subject of police and Football Association investigations over an alleged racist remark made to QPR’s Anton Ferdinand.
Capello spoke to Terry on Friday and also met with senior FA figures.
“He will be in the final squad,” he said. “Everyone spoke about John Terry and we decided on this.”
The Italian added: “[On Friday] I met him [Terry] personally, I spoke to him.
“We need to wait for what will happen about the FA investigation and the police investigation but I can tell you he is innocent until proven guilty.
“This is a really important thing – for me and the FA. For this reason I select him.”

Whatever you may feel about John Terry, and clearly there are many who find him morally repugnant, Fabio Capello is right to treat his inclusion in the squad as he would on any other occasion. The Chelsea man is in the middle of an investigation being carried out by both the FA and the Metropolitan Police but he is innocent until proven guilty so therefore it’s only fair to have him in the England party which he will once again captain.
One could argue that these investigations have taken far too long but perhaps all those concerned want to make entirely sure what occurred at Loftus Road before dishing out the appropriate punishment, which again is quite right.
